Renee "Apple" Applegate ran Dive Pardise in Cozumel, Mexico from 1994-2017. She was a PADI master scuba instructor with over 30 years of diving and training experience, and was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame in 2003. Apple was a friend of Diveheart's founder and president Jim Elliot for 20 years and hosted Diveheart adventures at Dive Paradise for 16 years.
Diveheart's mission - to enrich the quality of life and invigorate the can-do spirit for people with disabilities via the scuba experience - was always passionately supported by Apple. Please help us carry on her legacy by making a donation in her memory. Thank you!
